Hi my name is Robert
Sorry for the delay... You are going to have to measure the tank to get an idea of the size, one place you can try that I have had luck is Plastic-Mart below is a link for you copy and paste that into your browser. The actual job can be difficult and will require a tech with some RV background in plumbing, I would try some mobile services in your area but in the end you might need to get this into a RV shop as it can be a big job replacing that tank... Hope this helps some... Robert..
